My Testimony

I was raised in a Christian family and was drug to church a couple times a week. While I heard the Gospel countless times and wanted to accept Jesus as my Savior, I did not want him to be my Lord. I wanted to be the lord of my own life and do whatever I pleased.

 After spending much of my junior high and high school years living this way I finally got all the freedom I wanted, but it did not satisfy. I realized the lie of this kind of life. Having heard the Gospel many times and having many Godly people invest in my life, I began to realize that God did truly love me and wanted to be both my Savior and my Lord.

Alone in my apartment one evening I finally gave in and accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I experienced overwhelming peace and contentment. Now, I am fulfilling the call of God to proclaim the Gospel of Christ and calling people to accept Jesus not only as their Savior, but as their Lord as well.
